You might not expect a Saison in winter. But the enemy didn’t expect Washington to cross the icy Delaware, either. Expectations be damned, we say. We’re sneaking up on winter with a boatload of bravado and this Belgian-style farmhouse ale. Dry hopped with whole organic cardamom pods, our Saison has an assertive spiciness. In your face, winter.

Bruce’s Birthday Bash at the Craft Clerkenwell. Thanks to the old boy Bruce. Light haze on this gold beer. Little white head. Light dry palate. Airy. Mild fine carbonation. Pronounced herby character with a trace of citrus underneath. Dry finish with a little pine. Okay.

12 oz can. Pours cloudy yellow color with white head. Aromas of cardamom, orange peel, dough and spices. Similar flavors, overspiced for my liking. Medium body with lively carbonation.

JaBier (7027) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - MAR 13, 2013
Can from a sixer purchased at Aficionado’s. Clear yellow pour with a huge white head. Herbal nose some malt and funk. Malty flavor with some funk and lemongrass along with a more explicit herbal character of sage before a grassy hop finish. Very nice.

scarletfire65 (1336) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 12, 2013
Can, at home. Hazy yellow pour. Aroma of cardamom, chamomile, funk, horesblanket. The flavor is spicy, white pepper, cardamom, orange, with some crackery grains on the back end. Crisp dry finish. A bit too much on the cardamom.

Hmm where to start with this one. I don’tt like artificially spices saisons. Anyways, this one poured a hazy daraker yellow color with a white head. Aroma was lots of cardamom and ginger, light fruit peel and yeast too. Flavor was again cardamom, light vanilla and then lemon zest on the finish. Not very good.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - MAR 10, 2013
Serving: 12 oz. can from Wegmans Leesburg. It pours a hazy yellow color with a large styrofoam like white head. The nose has a little sulfur, Belgian yeast, and sweet cardamom notes. The flavor is spicy and sweet with heavy cardamom and a slight bitterness on the back end. A little dense and clunky on the tongue for the style. Short to medium finish. Decent.

ACHops (1374) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 8, 2013
12 oz can. Pours cloudy bright yellow with thin white lingering head. Aroma is big lemon and earthy spice notes. Taste is dry golden malt, with cardamom and pepper on the finish. Punchy and bracing. Easily one of the driest beers I’ve ever had. Big Saison.
